Bitterness is different, it's hit or miss with listeners, so I limit the risk with that symptomatic distance.

Track Name: The Tables Have Turned
I swear, I don't know what I've learned, my
Wheels keep turning on through,
Rolling over to you

I'm here, but I don't know where I've been, I'm
Stuck in amber, the truth
Is I'm stuck into you

The tables have turned,
Look how my stomach churns,
The tables have turned

I sleep, yeah, I sleep all the time, I've been
Thawed out of ice by the news
That I'm sleeping with you

I keep floating out into space, I'm
Feeling so faceless and blue,
Floating slow after you

The tables have turned,
Look how my stomach churns,
The tables have turned
Track Name: Heart Attack
Reattach the broken halves -
Post algebra, the aftermath
Minds divided in the gaps,
The sad silence in the after-laugh

I can see you in my sleep,
I'm reinventing what is left of me
Kiss while bending back the knees,
The reinvention of parentheses

Between our hands are tiny cracks,
Gaps that line our bending backs
Though my mind will wait, my whole body quakes
When it feels my heart attack

Lines divided in the sand -
Waves reclaiming waves, the after-land
Crossing fingers, holding hands,
The reinvention of the ampersand

Between our hands are tiny cracks,
Gaps that line our bending backs
Though my mind will wait, my whole body quakes
When it feels my heart attack
Track Name: Heart To Hyderabad
I'm stuck in the library, I am stuck in where I was
I am stuck inside a lack of light, the shadow of our love,
Take my brain on the plane with you, remember who I am
While my body buries keepsakes in the dry midwestern land

Now the past is spent, this passing tense has happened
And what happens now will make us out, will fasten us down
I will keep your place and cut and paste what you might want some day
And I can't keep you around, but I can keep up this town while you're away

Please don't go, I love you so
And if you leave, this won't be home

I'm stuck in the midwest, I am stuck in second place
Depending on the way the USA around you seems to face
Take my heart to Hyderabad, let it take in all the sun
That disappears in our dark hemisphere, the opacity we're from

Now the past is spent, this passing tense has happened
And what happens now will make us out, will fasten us down
I will keep your place and cut and paste what you might want some day
And I can't keep you around, but I can keep up this town while you're away

Please don't go, I love you so
And if you leave, this won't be home

I am sad I have to stay
But I'm not sad I feel that way
I'm not sorry for forever wanting more,
I'm not sorry for this pain, that I don't like the way things change

Please don't go, I love you so
And if you leave, this won't be home
Track Name: All Strung Out
When you're all strung out
When the world is just wearing you down
Let your soul fall out of your mouth
Let me feel myself full of your sound

When you're all kicked up
When the world just keeps filling your cup
Let me stir in the words of my love
Let me gush til your cup's overrun.

When you're all drawn in
When the world just seems selfish and thin
Let me lie on your side of the wind
Let me shoulder that boulder of sin

Darling, don't cry, don't fight
What happens when life splits in two
If you hold tight, then my life
Will feel like it's something of use

When I'm all strung out
When my worries will jerk around
Will you hold me over the ground?
At that peak, nothing's keeping me down
Track Name: When You Haunt Me
I'm here when you want me, I'm listening to you
I feel when you haunt me, I do
